Interior design requirements depend upon multiple factors, including your marital status! While a bachelor might look for easy-to-maintain interiors, a married individual will have to consider their spouse and kids’ (if any) needs as well. This was the case for Farant Poh, a quintessential family man, who had several requirements from the luxury remodel of his 5-room HDB.

First of all, he was keen on having the sleek and simple look of a modern luxury hotel room, with a spacious and minimalist design. Secondly, since this HDB would be housing a family of six, it had to be very space-efficient. Thirdly, the members of his family included two young daughters and his elderly mother, so he wanted a child and elder-friendly luxury home remodel. Finally, since apart from him, there were only women living in the home, he wanted the interior design to be as comfortable and convenient as possible for them.

High-quality furniture

#1: The Room Where the Family Bonds Together

The TV unit wall doubles as a partition
The marble-like laminate gives this TV unit a plush look
This study room hides behind the TV unit wall

Key Features

  • The marble-like laminate TV unit wall acts as a divider that separates the living room and the study room in this luxury remodel
  • Additionally, our designer Prinky used stainless steel and T-tinted mirrors to add some texture to the unit
  • Magnetic track lighting in the ceiling

Here’s how the living room looked like before Livspace transformed it:

Before: A bare and basic space

Fun Fact


Considering most of the family members were women, the homeowner chose this type of magnetic track lighting which can be easily removed by anyone, without any hassle.

#2: The Luxurious Dining Room Straight Out of a Premium Hotel

The mirror creates a glam effect
The colour palette helps in maintaining design continuity between the open concept living and dining areas

Key Features

  • The mirrored wall enlarges the space and makes it look luxurious at the same time
  • Moroever, stainless steel inlays and T-tinted trims maintain continuity with the TV unit feature wall

Fun Fact


This contemporary unit serves two purposes. While the upper section hides the electrical distribution board, the lower part acts as a shoe rack.

#3: A Spacious Kitchen for Multiple Cooks

A light wood kitchen looks timeless and elegant
Spacious enough for multiple people to cook together
The glass backsplash ensures a modern and contemporary look

Key Features

  • Prinky hacked off the original entrance wall to the kitchen in this luxury remodel to create extra space, considering three people will be using it
  • The choice of light wood cabinetry helps in making the kitchen look more spacious and timeless
  • The countertop is sintered stone, thereby making it moisture-, heat- and scratch-resistant

Fun Fact


Farant, the owner of this HDB, is the main cook of the household and loves to whip up meals during special occasions like Chinese New Year.

#4: Luxury Master Bedroom Remodel Customised for the Lady of This HDB

For an understated but glamorous vibe, opt for pastels and neutrals
Never run out of storage space!

Key Features

  • Since Farant’s wife, Eunice required a lot of storage space for her clothes, bags and other accessories, our designer gave them a wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling wardrobe
  • In addition, there is a compact dressing area near the wardrobe which makes it convenient for Eunice to get ready

Here’s how the master bedroom looked before the luxury remodel:

Before: A dark and cluttered bedroom

Fun Fact


As Eunice’s favourite colour is pink, Farant chose a pink theme for the master bedroom.

#5: Things We Loved in This HDB Luxury Remodel


This wardrobe is in the kids’ bedroom. The beige part of the wardrobe is actually additional storage where the girls can place their books and bags.

For the master bathroom, Farant wanted a luxe look, like a hotel’s bathroom. To accommodate this, Prinky opted for tons of lighting and glass for a glam appeal. Additionally, this theme perfectly complements the gunmetal grey accents in the bathroom.


The common bathroom has maximum lighting, but not too much glass. This makes it safe and elder-friendly.
